Sure, some may already be playing Anthem early, but you’ve decided to settle on your pre-order/preload and maybe have even decided to take the plunge after a successful EA Access 10-Hour trial. Whatever your reasons, you should be aware that there is one single Anthem unlock time across the US and UK, and you can even play it early on the West Coast! Here’s each Anthem unlock time, in full, according to region.

  • 9 PM Pacific on February 21
  • 12 AM Eastern (February 22)
  • 5 AM GMT (February 22)

Sorry to all UK folk! Unless you’ve got a physical copy, you won’t be able to fire up your Anthem preload at midnight. Yes, it kinda sucks, but at least you now know ahead of time. It’s been doubly frustrating for those on PS4, too, who have not had a chance to sample Anthem’s goods. Thankfully, the wait is almost over.

As of right now, you can start downloading your Anthem preload on PS4. It doesn’t make up for Origin Premier and EA Access having an exclusive preview of the game, and even an earlier release in Origin Premier’s case, but that means the Anthem unlock time on PS4 is the same as above,. Because you can install it now it means that, as soon as it gets pushed live at the following times, you’ll be able to play Anthem on PS4:

  • 9 PM Pacific on February 21
  • 12 AM Eastern (February 22)
  • 5 AM GMT (February 22)
